Think Big, Shop Small in Torrance

After Black Friday, don’t forget to support Small Business Saturday during one of the busiest (more like craziest) shopping weekends of the year. If you’re one of the brave souls who enjoys shopping this time of year, then make your way to some of Torrance’s best mom and pop shops this holiday season.

PM Sounds

SHOP…in the name of love! PM Sounds is one the best record stores in Torrance. They sell trade records, vintage audio and music memorabilia. Locals say this place has rare records and hard to find gems. It’s the perfect place to find a music themed gift this holiday season. Come Rockin’ Around PM Sounds for a happy holiday!

Cracked Vessel Vintage

Get cracking at Cracked Vessel Vintage! The adventurous shop sells some of the best vintage décor around. Locals rave about this place and say there are tons of unusual treasures here. You’ll find items like furniture, tableware, collectibles, and mantiques. While you’re here, peek behind the counter and you’ll probably see Cracked Vessel’s under-the-radar security chief and shop dog, Cowboy. Happy antique hunting!

Bluff Cove Olive Oil

Olive you! That’s what you’ll hear after buying a loved one a gift from Bluff Cove Olive Oil. The family owned and operated shop has some of the freshest and finest extra virgin olive oils in the world. (Romaine calm!) Their oils are certified Ultra-Premium, which is the highest quality standard for extra virgin olive oil. All their balsamics are also from Italy and are barrel aged in the traditional style. This place is definitely worth visiting!

Le Unique Boutique

Bring out your inner Christian Dior (He was a famous French fashion designer, duh!) and make your way to Le Unique Boutique. The French inspired shop has a variety of vintage style jewelry, clothing, home accessories, gift items, chandeliers, artwork, shabby chic furniture, antiques and much more. It’s always shop o’clock at Le Unique!

Jaunts

Life is too short to wear boring clothes, so make your way to Jaunts! This contemporary women’s boutique is one of the trendiest shops in downtown Torrance. Locals say the owner is really helpful when it comes to finding that picture-perfect outfit. Keep calm and shop on!

South Bay Brewing Supply

You’ll never make pour decisions at South Bay Brewing. It’s the perfect place to pick up a gift for your beer making friend or loved one. It’s also the top spot for homebrewers, pro-brewers and winemakers in Torrance. They sell home brewing supplies including hardware and equipment, grain, hops and yeast. Many locals say this place is responsible for their brewing obsession! After shopping here, make sure to head to one (or all) of the nearby breweries for a cold one.

I hate presents, said no one ever. These are just a few unique small stores in Torrance worth splurging on this holiday season. Come discover SoCal’s secret city, book your trip today!
